It turns out Hillary Clinton has been doing more than just hiking in her free time. The former secretary of State has also been busy writing, and she’ll release two new books this fall.

Simon & Schuster will publish a collection of personal essays by the former Democratic presidential candidate, as well as a children’s picture book version of her 1996 bestseller “It Takes a Village: And Other Lessons Children Teach Us.”

The essay collection, as yet untitled, is inspired by Clinton’s favorite inspirational quotations, the publisher said in a news release.

“These are the words I live by,” Clinton said. “These quotes have helped me celebrate the good times, laugh at the absurd times, persevere during the hard times and deepen my appreciation of all life has to offer. I hope by sharing these words and my thoughts about them, the essays will be meaningful for readers.”
